Europe's largest IT firm says goodbye to internal email
2 December, 2011 - 10:03
Atos is doing away with internal email, as its CEO claims only 15% of the 200 emails his staff receives on an average basis are valuable.
Atos CEO Thierry Breton claims his employees are wasting 5-20 hours a week handling email. Instead of the internal communications tool, he wants staff to opt for instant messaging and other chat-like media.
Breton says he hasn't sent a work email for three years. If employees want to reach him, he prefers they call, text, or visit his office.
Meanwhile, external communication will still center around email, leaving employees vulnerable to interruptions in spite of the internal email ban.
